New Tang Dynasty Television Plays Important Role in Reaching Chinese with the Facts about Falun Gong
(Minghui.org) I have been installing New Tang Dynasty TV (NTDTV) receivers for several years, but do not make any income from it. I only charge for the cost of the parts and when people are not able to pay for them, other Falun Gong practitioners will help chip in to pay. There are many touching stories of the role that NTDTV has played in helping people understand Dafa and the persecution.
Security Official Apologizes for Persecuting Practitioners
A security official in Zhoujiacun village used to follow the local 610 Office in persecuting practitioners. He often criticized Falun Dafa (also known as Falun Gong), beat his wife who is a practitioner, and monitored or threatened the practitioners who live in his area. He also helped the police in arresting them.
Three years later, he became seriously ill. Half of his body was paralyzed and he lost the ability to walk, talk, and care for himself.
In March 2014, his wife asked us to install an NTDTV receiver in their house. He then began watching the NTDTV programs and came to understand the facts about the persecution and how the Tiananmen Square self-immolation hoax was fabricated by the Chinese Communist Party to incite hatred towards the practice. He realized that Falun Dafa is practiced around the world, is supported in other countries, and that practitioners simply strive to be better people by following Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance.
When he was able to talk again, he began to tell the village cadres, his colleagues, relatives, and neighbors that Falun Dafa had spread around the world, and that it is practiced in more than 100 countries. He also invited them to watch the NTDTV programs at his house.
He eventually apologized to the practitioners and quit the Party. He has been gradually recovering his health.
“Falun Dafa Is the Best in the World”
There was another man who has been watching NTDTV programs for four years. He and his family understand the facts about Falun Dafa and support the practice. He often tells his friends and relatives that Falun Dafa is good. He once asked his grandson, “Grandson, what’s the best in the world?” When his grandson shook his head without an answer, the man said, “Let me tell you. Falun Dafa is the best in the world!”
Initially Opposing to Supporting Dafa
There is also a veteran whose daughter is a Falun Dafa practitioner. Initially, he was against her practicing because he believed the Party's propaganda against Dafa. His family had an NTDTV receiver installed in their home in May 2012.
After he began watching NTDTV programs, he realized that Dafa was practiced around the world. He then became supportive of his daughter practicing. He also began telling his friends and relatives that Falun Dafa is good and how the communist regime should not persecute the practice.
